Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska--
2021-22 and 2022-23 Subsistence Taking of Fish and Shellfish
Regulations
AGENCY: Forest Service, Agriculture; Fish and Wildlife Service,
Interior.
ACTION: Proposed rule.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
SUMMARY: This proposed rule would establish regulations for fish and
shellfish seasons, harvest limits, methods, and means related to taking
of fish and shellfish for subsistence uses during the 2021-2022 and
2022-2023 regulatory years. The Federal Subsistence Board (Board) is on
a schedule of completing the process of revising subsistence taking of
fish and shellfish regulations in odd-numbered years and subsistence
taking of wildlife regulations in even-numbered years; public proposal
and review processes take place during the preceding year. The Board
also addresses customary and traditional use determinations during the
applicable cycle. When final, the resulting rulemaking will replace the
existing subsistence fish and shellfish taking regulations. This
proposed rule could also amend the general regulations on subsistence
taking of fish and wildlife.
DATES:
 Public meetings: The Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils
will hold public meetings to receive comments and make proposals to
change this proposed rule March 2 through March 26, 2020, and will hold
another round of public meetings to discuss and receive comments on the
proposals, and make recommendations on the proposals to the Federal
Subsistence Board, on several dates between August 18 and November 3,
2020. The Board will discuss and evaluate proposed regulatory changes
during a public meeting in Anchorage, AK, in January 2021. See
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION for specific information on dates and
locations of the public meetings.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Background
 Under Title VIII of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation
Act (ANILCA) (16 U.S.C. 3111-3126), the Secretary of the Interior and
the Secretary of Agriculture (hereafter referred to as ``the
Secretaries'') jointly implement the Federal Subsistence Management
Program (hereafter referred to as ``the Program''). The Program
provides a preference for take of fish and wildlife resources for
subsistence uses on Federal public lands and waters in Alaska. Only
Alaska residents of areas identified as rural are eligible to
participate in the Program. The Secretaries published temporary
regulations to carry out the Program in the Federal Register on June
29, 1990 (55 FR 27114), and final regulations on May 29, 1992 (57 FR
22940). Program officials have subsequently amended these regulations a
number of times.
 Because the Program is a joint effort between the Departments of
the Interior and Agriculture, these regulations are located in two
titles of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR): The Agriculture
regulations are at title 36, ``Parks, Forests, and Public Property,''
and the Interior regulations are at title 50, ``Wildlife and
Fisheries,'' at 36 CFR 242.1-28 and 50 CFR 100.1-28, respectively.
Consequently, to indicate that identical changes are proposed for
regulations in both titles 36 and 50, in this document we will present
references to specific sections of the CFR as shown in the following
example: Sec. __.24.
 The Program regulations contain subparts as follows: Subpart A,
General Provisions; Subpart B, Program Structure; Subpart C, Board
Determinations; and Subpart D, Subsistence Taking of Fish and Wildlife.
Consistent with subpart B of these regulations, the Secretaries
established a Federal Subsistence Board to administer the Program. The
Board comprises:
 A Chair appointed by the Secretary of the Interior with
concurrence of the Secretary of Agriculture;
 The Alaska Regional Director, U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service;
 The Alaska Regional Director, National Park Service;
 The Alaska State Director, Bureau of Land Management;
 The Alaska Regional Director, Bureau of Indian Affairs;
 The Alaska Regional Forester, U.S. Forest Service; and
 Two public members appointed by the Secretary of the
Interior with concurrence of the Secretary of Agriculture.
Through the Board, these agencies and public members participate in the
development of regulations for subparts C and D. Subpart C sets forth
important Board determinations regarding program eligibility, i.e.,
which areas of Alaska are considered rural and which species are
harvested in those areas as part of a ``customary and traditional use''
for subsistence purposes. Subpart D sets forth specific harvest seasons
and limits.
 In administering the Program, the Secretaries divided Alaska into
10 subsistence resource regions, each of which is represented by a
Regional Advisory Council. The Regional Advisory Councils provide a
forum for rural residents with personal knowledge of local conditions
and resource requirements to have a meaningful role in the subsistence
management of fish and wildlife on Federal public lands in Alaska. The
Regional Advisory Council members represent varied geographical,
cultural, and user interests within each region.
Public Review Process--Comments, Proposals, and Public Meetings
 The Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils will have a
substantial role in reviewing this proposed rule and making
recommendations for the final rule. The Federal Subsistence Board,
through the Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils, will hold
public meetings on this proposed rule at the following locations in
Alaska, on the following dates:
Region 1--Southeast Regional Council.... Juneau................... March 24, 2020.
Region 2--Southcentral Regional Council. Anchorage................ March 4, 2020.
Region 3--Kodiak/Aleutians Regional Kodiak................... March 19, 2020.
 Council.
Region 4--Bristol Bay Regional Council.. Naknek................... March 10, 2020.
Region 5--Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Regional Bethel................... March 16, 2020.
 Council.
Region 6--Western Interior Regional Fairbanks................ March 2, 2020.
 Council.
Region 7--Seward Peninsula Regional Nome..................... March 11, 2020.
 Council.
Region 8--Northwest Arctic Regional Anchorage................ March 16, 2020.
 Council.
Region 9--Eastern Interior Regional Fairbanks................ March 3, 2020.
 Council.
Region 10--North Slope Regional Council. Utqiagvik................ March 23, 2020.

 During April 2020, the written proposals to change the regulations
at subpart D, take of fish and shellfish, and subpart C, customary and
traditional use determinations, will be compiled and distributed for
public review. Written
[[Page 9432]]
public comments will be accepted on the distributed proposals during a
second 30-day public comment period. The Board, through the Regional
Advisory Councils, will hold a second series of public meetings in
August through November 2020, to receive comments on specific proposals
and to develop recommendations to the Board at the following locations
in Alaska, on the following dates:
Region 1--Southeast Regional Council.... Sitka.................... October 20, 2020.
Region 2--Southcentral Regional Council. Anchorage................ October 7, 2020.
Region 3--Kodiak/Aleutians Regional Cold Bay................. September 10, 2020.
 Council.
Region 4--Bristol Bay Regional Council.. Dillingham............... October 28, 2020.
Region 5--Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Regional St. Mary's............... September 22, 2020.
 Council.
Region 6--Western Interior Regional Aniak.................... October 14, 2020.
 Council.
Region 7--Seward Peninsula Regional Nome..................... October 28, 2020.
 Council.
Region 8--Northwest Arctic Regional Kotzebue................. November 3, 2020.
 Council.
Region 9--Eastern Interior Regional Fairbanks................ October 14, 2020.
 Council.
Region 10--North Slope Regional Council. Point Hope............... August 18, 2020.

 A notice will be published of specific dates, times, and meeting
locations in local and statewide newspapers prior to both series of
meetings. Locations and dates may change based on weather or local
circumstances. The amount of work on each Regional Advisory Council's
agenda determines the length of each Regional Advisory Council meeting,
but typically the meetings are scheduled to last 2 days. Occasionally a
Council will lack information necessary during a scheduled meeting to
make a recommendation to the Board or to provide comments on other
matters affecting subsistence in the region. If this situation occurs,
the Council may announce on the record a later teleconference to
address the specific issue when the requested information or data is
available; it is noted that any follow-up teleconference would be an
exception and must be approved, in advance, by the Assistant Regional
Director for the Office of Subsistence Management. These
teleconferences are open to the public, along with opportunities for
public comment; the date and time will be announced during the
scheduled meeting and that same information will be announced through
news releases and local radio, television, and social media ads.
 The Board will discuss and evaluate proposed changes to the
subsistence management regulations during a public meeting scheduled to
be held in Anchorage, Alaska, in January 2021. The Federal Subsistence
Regional Advisory Council Chairs, or their designated representatives,
will present their respective Councils' recommendations at the Board
meeting. Additional oral testimony may be provided on specific
proposals before the Board at that time. At that public meeting, the
Board will deliberate and take final action on proposals received that
request changes to this proposed rule.
 Proposals to the Board to modify the general fish and wildlife
regulations, fish and shellfish harvest regulations, and customary and
traditional use determinations must include the following information:
 a. Name, address, and telephone number of the requestor;
 b. Each section and/or paragraph designation in this proposed rule
for which changes are suggested, if applicable;
 c. A description of the regulatory change(s) desired;
 d. A statement explaining why each change is necessary;
 e. Proposed wording changes; and
 f. Any additional information that you believe will help the Board
in evaluating the proposed change.
 The Board immediately rejects proposals that fail to include the
above information, or proposals that are beyond the scope of
authorities in Sec. __.24, subpart C (the regulations governing
customary and traditional use determinations), and Sec. Sec. __.25,
__.27, and __.28 of subpart D (the general and specific regulations
governing the subsistence take of fish and shellfish). If a proposal
needs clarification, prior to being distributed for public review, the
proponent may be contacted, and the proposal could be revised based on
their input. Once a proposal is distributed for public review, no
additional changes may be made as part of the original submission.
During the January 2021 meeting, the Board may defer review and action
on some proposals to allow time for cooperative planning efforts, or to
acquire additional needed information. The Board may elect to defer
taking action on any given proposal if the workload of staff, Regional
Advisory Councils, or the Board becomes excessive. These deferrals may
be based on recommendations by the affected Regional Advisory
Council(s) or staff members, or on the basis of the Board's intention
to do least harm to the subsistence user and the resource involved. A
proponent of a proposal may withdraw the proposal provided it has not
been considered, and a recommendation has not been made, by a Regional
Advisory Council. The Board may consider and act on alternatives that
address the intent of a proposal while differing in approach.
 You may submit written comments and materials concerning this
proposed rule by one of the methods listed in ADDRESSES. If you submit
a comment via http://www.regulations.gov, your entire comment,
including any personal identifying information, will be posted on the
website. If you submit a hardcopy comment that includes personal
identifying information, you may request at the top of your document
that we withhold this information from public review. However, we
cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. We will post all
hardcopy comments on http://www.regulations.gov.
 Comments and materials we receive, as well as supporting
documentation we used in preparing this proposed rule, will be
available for public inspection on http://www.regulations.gov at Docket
No. FWS-R7-SM-2019-0092, or by appointment, between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays, at: USFWS, Office of
Subsistence Management, 1011 East Tudor Road, Anchorage, AK 99503.
Reasonable Accommodations
 The Federal Subsistence Board is committed to providing access to
these meetings for all participants. Please direct all requests for
sign language interpreting services, closed captioning, or other
accommodation needs to Caron McKee, 907-786-3880, [email protected],
or 800-877-8339 (TTY), seven business days prior to the meeting you
would like to attend.
Tribal Consultation and Comment
 As expressed in Executive Order 13175, ``Consultation and
Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments,'' the Federal officials
that have been delegated authority by the Secretaries are committed to
honoring the unique government-to-government political
[[Page 9433]]
relationship that exists between the Federal Government and Federally
Recognized Indian Tribes (Tribes) as listed in 82 FR 4915 (January 17,
2017). Consultation with Alaska Native corporations is based on Public
Law 108-199, div. H, Sec. 161, Jan. 23, 2004, 118 Stat. 452, as amended
by Public Law 108-447, div. H, title V, Sec. 518, Dec. 8, 2004, 118
Stat. 3267, which provides that: ``The Director of the Office of
Management and Budget and all Federal agencies shall hereafter consult
with Alaska Native corporations on the same basis as Indian tribes
under Executive Order No. 13175.''
 The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act does not
provide specific rights to Tribes for the subsistence taking of
wildlife, fish, and shellfish. However, because tribal members are
affected by subsistence fishing, hunting, and trapping regulations, the
Secretaries, through the Board, will provide Federally recognized
Tribes and Alaska Native corporations an opportunity to consult on this
proposed rule.
 The Board will engage in outreach efforts for this proposed rule,
including a notification letter, to ensure that Tribes and Alaska
Native corporations are advised of the mechanisms by which they can
participate. The Board provides a variety of opportunities for
consultation: Proposing changes to the existing rule; commenting on
proposed changes to the existing rule; engaging in dialogue at the
Regional Council meetings; engaging in dialogue at the Board's
meetings; and providing input in person, by mail, email, or phone at
any time during the rulemaking process. The Board will commit to
efficiently and adequately providing an opportunity to Tribes and
Alaska Native corporations for consultation in regard to subsistence
rulemaking.
 The Board will consider Tribes' and Alaska Native corporations'
information, input, and recommendations, and address their concerns as
much as practicable.
Developing the 2021-22 and 2022-23 Fish and Shellfish Seasons and
Harvest Limit Proposed Regulations
 In titles 36 and 50 of the CFR, the subparts C and D regulations
are subject to periodic review and revision. The Board currently
completes the process of revising subsistence take of fish and
shellfish regulations in odd-numbered years and wildlife regulations in
even-numbered years; public proposal and review processes take place
during the preceding year. The Board also addresses customary and
traditional use determinations during the applicable cycle.
 The current subsistence program regulations form the starting point
for consideration during each new rulemaking cycle. Consequently, in
this rulemaking action pertaining to fish and shellfish, the Board will
consider proposals to revise the regulations in any of the following
sections of titles 36 and 50 of the CFR:
 Sec. __.24: customary and traditional use determinations;
 Sec. __.25: general provisions governing the subsistence
take of wildlife, fish, and shellfish;
 Sec. __.27: specific provisions governing the subsistence
take of fish; and
 Sec. __.28: specific provisions governing the subsistence
take of shellfish.
As such, the text of the proposed 2021-23 subparts C and D subsistence
regulations in titles 36 and 50 is the combined text of previously
issued rules that revised these sections of the regulations. The
following Federal Register citations show when these CFR sections were
last revised. Therefore, the regulations established by these three
final rules constitute the text of this proposed rule:
 The text of the proposed amendments to 36 CFR 242.24 and 242.27 and
50 CFR 100.24 and 100.27 is the final rule for the 2019-2021 regulatory
period for fish (84 FR 39744; August 12, 2019).
 The text of the proposed amendments to 36 CFR 242.25 and 50 CFR
100.25 is the final rule for the 2018-20 regulatory period for wildlife
(83 FR 50758; October 9, 2018).
 The text of the proposed amendments to 36 CFR 242.28 and 50 CFR
100.28 is the final rule for the 2011-13 regulatory period for fish and
shellfish (76 FR 12564; March 8, 2011).
 These regulations will remain in effect until subsequent Board
action changes elements as a result of the public review process
outlined above in this document and a final rule is published.
Compliance With Statutory and Regulatory Authorities
National Environmental Policy Act
 A Draft Environmental Impact Statement that described four
alternatives for developing a Federal Subsistence Management Program
was distributed for public comment on October 7, 1991. The Final
Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) was published on February 28,
1992. The Record of Decision (ROD) on Subsistence Management for
Federal Public Lands in Alaska was signed April 6, 1992. The selected
alternative in the FEIS (Alternative IV) defined the administrative
framework of an annual regulatory cycle for subsistence regulations.
 A 1997 environmental assessment dealt with the expansion of Federal
jurisdiction over fisheries and is available at the office listed under
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. The Secretary of the Interior, with
concurrence of the Secretary of Agriculture, determined that expansion
of Federal jurisdiction does not constitute a major Federal action
significantly affecting the human environment and, therefore, signed a
Finding of No Significant Impact.
Section 810 of ANILCA
 An ANILCA section 810 analysis was completed as part of the FEIS
process on the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The intent of
all Federal subsistence regulations is to accord subsistence uses of
fish and wildlife on public lands a priority over the taking of fish
and wildlife on such lands for other purposes, unless restriction is
necessary to conserve healthy fish and wildlife populations. The final
section 810 analysis determination appeared in the April 6, 1992, ROD
and concluded that the Federal Subsistence Management Program, under
Alternative IV with an annual process for setting subsistence
regulations, may have some local impacts on subsistence uses, but will
not likely restrict subsistence uses significantly.
 During the subsequent environmental assessment process for
extending fisheries jurisdiction, an evaluation of the effects of the
subsistence program regulations was conducted in accordance with
section 810. That evaluation also supported the Secretaries'
determination that the regulations will not reach the ``may
significantly restrict'' threshold that would require notice and
hearings under ANILCA section 810(a).
Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA)
 This proposed rule does not contain any new collections of
information that require Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval
under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). OMB has reviewed and approved
the collections of information associated with the subsistence
regulations at 36 CFR part 242 and 50 CFR part 100, and assigned OMB
Control Number 1018-0075 (expires January 31, 2020, and, in accordance
with 5 CFR 1320.10, the Service may continue to sponsor the collection
while the renewal is pending
[[Page 9434]]
at OMB). We may not conduct or sponsor and you are not required to
respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently
valid OMB control number.
Regulatory Planning and Review (Executive Order 12866)
 Executive Order 12866 provides that the Office of Information and
Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) in the Office of Management and Budget will
review all significant rules. OIRA has determined that this proposed
rule is not significant.
 Executive Order 13563 reaffirms the principles of E.O. 12866 while
calling for improvements in the nation's regulatory system to promote
predictability, to reduce uncertainty, and to use the best, most
innovative, and least burdensome tools for achieving regulatory ends.
The executive order directs agencies to consider regulatory approaches
that reduce burdens and maintain flexibility and freedom of choice for
the public where these approaches are relevant, feasible, and
consistent with regulatory objectives. E.O. 13563 emphasizes further
that regulations must be based on the best available science and that
the rulemaking process must allow for public participation and an open
exchange of ideas. We have developed this proposed rule in a manner
consistent with these requirements.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
 The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.)
requires preparation of flexibility analyses for rules that will have a
significant effect on a substantial number of small entities, which
include small businesses, organizations, or governmental jurisdictions.
In general, the resources to be harvested under this proposed rule are
already being harvested and consumed by the local harvester and do not
result in an additional dollar benefit to the economy. However, we
estimate that two million pounds of meat are harvested by subsistence
users annually and, if given an estimated dollar value of $3.00 per
pound, this amount would equate to about $6 million in food value
statewide. Based upon the amounts and values cited above, the
Departments certify that this rulemaking will not have a significant
economic effect on a substantial number of small entities within the
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
Executive Order 13771
 This rule is not an Executive Order (E.O.) 13771 (``Reducing
Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs'') (82 FR 9339, February 3,
2017) regulatory action because this rule is not significant under E.O.
12866.
Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act
 Under the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (5
U.S.C. 801 et seq.), this proposed rule is not a major rule. It will
not have an effect on the economy of $100 million or more, will not
cause a major increase in costs or prices for consumers, and will not
have significant adverse effects on competition, employment,
investment, productivity, innovation, or the ability of U.S.-based
enterprises to compete with foreign-based enterprises.
Executive Order 12630
 Title VIII of ANILCA requires the Secretaries to administer a
subsistence priority on public lands. The scope of this program is
limited by definition to certain public lands. Likewise, these proposed
regulations have no potential takings of private property implications
as defined by Executive Order 12630.
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act
 The Secretaries have determined and certify pursuant to the
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, 2 U.S.C. 1502 et seq., that this
rulemaking will not impose a cost of $100 million or more in any given
year on local or State governments or private entities. The
implementation of this rule is by Federal agencies and there is no cost
imposed on any State or local entities or tribal governments.
Executive Order 12988
 The Secretaries have determined that these regulations meet the
applicable standards provided in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive
Order 12988, regarding civil justice reform.
Executive Order 13132
 In accordance with Executive Order 13132, the proposed rule does
not have sufficient Federalism implications to warrant the preparation
of a Federalism Assessment. Title VIII of ANILCA precludes the State
from exercising subsistence management authority over fish and wildlife
resources on Federal lands unless it meets certain requirements.
Executive Order 13175
 The Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, Title VIII,
does not provide specific rights to tribes for the subsistence taking
of wildlife, fish, and shellfish. However, the Secretaries, through the
Board, will provide Federally recognized Tribes and Alaska Native
corporations an opportunity to consult on this proposed rule.
Consultations with Alaska Native corporations are based on Public Law
108-199, div. H, Sec. 161, Jan. 23, 2004, 118 Stat. 452, as amended by
Public Law 108-447, div. H, title V, Sec. 518, Dec. 8, 2004, 118 Stat.
3267, which provides that: ``The Director of the Office of Management
and Budget and all Federal agencies shall hereafter consult with Alaska
Native corporations on the same basis as Indian tribes under Executive
Order No. 13175.''
 The Secretaries, through the Board, will provide a variety of
opportunities for consultation: Commenting on proposed changes to the
existing rule; engaging in dialogue at the Regional Council meetings;
engaging in dialogue at the Board's meetings; and providing input in
person, by mail, email, or phone at any time during the rulemaking
process.
Executive Order 13211
 This Executive Order requires agencies to prepare Statements of
Energy Effects when undertaking certain actions. However, this proposed
rule is not a significant regulatory action under E.O. 13211, affecting
energy supply, distribution, or use, and no Statement of Energy Effects
is required.
